For about 3 weeks, I wore naked nails because I couldn’t be bothered to go out and buy cotton balls to remove my nail polish. I won’t paint my nails unless I know there is a sure way that I can remove the lacquer if it gets chipped. Also, my nails have become brittle, yet another reason to give them a rest.
However, I can’t stand bare nails for very long so I decided to paint them once again. You might not care to know why I specifically chose a classic red nail polish (even though Valentine’s day is long gone). Since the Lana Del Rey – Burning Desire official music video came out, I have had it on replay.
I’m in lust with almond-shaped, vintage-looking nails (some call them to claw nails, I’d rather not). As mentioned prior, my nails are now brittle and I work in an office. It’s not fun to type with very long nails. At least, I have the perfect red nail polish, I can wear red nails at any length and still feel proper.
A-list is a classic red polish with a cream finish. I’m wearing 2-3 coats. My apologies for sloppy application, this is an older Essie polish with a thinner brush that I’m not used to.

This song is just too sexy. Have you seen my LDR inspired makeup tutorial? See it here.
